    I have encountered lots of moms that ask about the gaba supplement lately. Can you help me with some advice in this matter? Should I tell them to go see a doctor that is a specialist in nutrition?

    Thank you "Tokyyo_Jonny" for your comments, and everyone else for that matter. I am 40 years old, and just about finished with my prerequisites YAY!! I have also had two premies, and now desire to be a Neonatal ICU nurse. I have also been told that it is best to obtain a BSN. I have quite a ways to go, but reading these postings is very encouraging. Thanks:)

    It's either this or pediatric nurse for me. I love working with the little ones. Will being a male be a problem for me?

    I am a neonatal ICU nurse in San Antonio, Texas. Many facilities here will hire new grads out of nursing school, but they must complete some sort of internship or developmental program. I also recommend that you get your BSN, RN rather than ADN, RN. I'm not knocking ADN's, they are great clinically, but if you want to further your career and have a bigger picture of what is going on I highly suggest knocking out the bachelor's degree. As far as the job goes, be prepared for high stress and long hours. The infant will not be the hardest part of the job--it will be the parents. If you do not have the social skills necessary to interact with highly emotional parents then this is not the job for you. It is a rewarding career if you can handle all of the aforementioned comments, though. I hope this helps!

    Ive always wanted to be a RN and now after having a premature baby at 7 months and spending over a month in the NICU I have realized that I want to be a neonatal nurse. I met many different nurses while my baby was there and they were wonderful.

    I am looking into what kind of nursing I want to do. Working with babies and children is exactly what I want to do. However I want to get hired, will I be after I graduate? and what do I need to become to be a NICU nurse? ex. RN, BSN, ADN......

    I'm a new RN grad looking to work as a Neonatal nurse. I live in Ohio and am finding out, the majority of hospitals do not hire new grads in the NICU.

    I am highly interested in this position, even though I am going to school for an associates degree as a registered nurse.
